rockfordCan anyone recommend a supplier for tire testing equipment? I am looking for equipment to test damaged tires...valve leakage, tire body leakage, Shore A hardness, etc.

Tireman9A Tread Durometer can be found at www.durometer.com.

Valve leakage, of used vlaves & valve cores must be done on the original wheel. The act of removing the core or removing the valve may destroy any evidence of leakage. I simply apply a soap & water solution ald look for bubbles.

Tire body leakage can be done either by weting the tire with a soap & water solution or submerging in a tank of water and looking for bubbles.

Were you looking for something else?
